Celtic Thunder Is Coming - Reserve (or Win) Seats Today!

Posted on 05 Nov 2012

Celtic Thunder Voyage Concert, Thursday, Nov. 15, at 7:30 p.m. 

There’s nothing on earth quite like a man who can sing – tenor, lead, bari or bass, who’s going to be particular? But, I have to say, it’s especially wonderful when the man who can sing also happens to be Irish. (Or in George’s case, Scottish.) Call me a sucker for the accent, but those pure, sweet tones and beautiful vowels cut a path straight to my heart. Feel the same? Celtic Thunder is coming to Little Rock on Thursday, November 15, at 7:30 p.m. Write a letter telling your favorite member why you love his music, and you could win a copy of Celtic Thunder’s latest CD and tickets to the show!

Whether you’re simply a fan of the specials or a devoted Thunderhead, this tour is not to be missed! We’re holding the special, “best of” concert in Robinson Center Music Hall before Celtic Thunder retires the set list, and tickets are available exclusively through the AETN Foundation. Because none of this would be possible without the support of our viewers, we’re excited to share the love!

So how will we go about sharing? We want to give tickets away to Celtic Thunder’s biggest fans, so we’ve created a special contest! You’ll get a chance to show Celtic Thunder your admiration by writing a special (G-rated) love letter to your favorite member.  While it’d be easy to keep writing, we’re looking for entries that are two pages or less telling your favorite Celtic hunk why he’s earned your special adoration. Don’t be afraid to do your research! (After all, these talented gents are more than just pretty faces.)

Once you’ve finished writing, email your letter to kculpepper@aetn.org or address it to:

“Celtic Thunder Love Letter Contest”
C/o Katie Culpepper
Arkansas Educational Television Network
350 S. Donaghey, Ave.
Conway, AR 72034

We’ll select and announce the lucky winners Monday, Nov. 12, to give everyone plenty of time to get ready for the main event.

If, however, you aren’t willing to leave your chance of seeing your favorite Celtic singers up to chance, you can easily secure a seat for a bird’s-eye view of the dramatic solos, compelling ensembles and comedic acts through the AETN Foundation. Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis with prices ranging from $45 to $150. Check out additional information and reserve your seats at aetnfoundation.org/boxoffice or by calling 1-800-662-2386. We look forward to seeing you there!

Arkansas and the American Dream
We’re all familiar with the American Dream — the idea that anyone in the United States can climb the economic ladder of opportunity — but is it still achievable? AETN continues to address poverty in the state with “A Deeper Look: The American Dream in Arkansas” and to survey the national landscape with “Dream On.” Learn more about these projects and a special night of programming after the jump.

You can have fun, help others and support causes and organizations by sharing a bit of your spare time and volunteering! Learn how you (or your group) can help others — and yourself — by working with AETN Foundation.
